I miss Chappelle's Show. On a weekly, if not daily basis. The reruns are just as funny now as when they originally aired. And references to the show just don't get old. It was comic genius, and now it's gone. I need a moment to get myself together.
Who can forget Tyrone Biggums, the loveable dancing crackhead on the show? Yes, he was skittish, but he never ceased to be entertaining. Especially his dance.
What's not to love about October? Crisp fall weather, I was born and pink is everywhere you look. What more could anyone ask for?
Clinton Portis' mouth has gotten him into trouble this week. He said the following about an investigation into the New York Jets' treatment of a female reporter, from espn.com:
"I think you put women reporters in the locker room in position to see guys walking around naked, and you sit in the locker room with 53 guys, and all of the sudden you see a nice woman in the locker room. I think men are going to tend to turn and look and want to say something to that woman.
If you haven't realized it from previous posts, you know now: I do not like Tom Brady. Yesterday, he revealed that he wasn't happy with fans leaving Patriots' games early. New England fans, please take this as your queue to leave as early as possible at each and every game you attend. Watch a quarter, have a brew, and call it a day. Hey Tommy, most of your fans don't make $19 million a year, so can't afford to miss or be totally exhausted for a day at work. So sorry to displease you.
Sunday night's Eagles season opener was hard to watch, not least for the number of Eagles injuries. The most difficult injury to watch injury was that of Fullback Leonard Weaver, which I showed you right here. Seeing Weaver's injury likely caused you to physically recoil. And seeing him cry as he was helped off the field was just absolutely gut wrenching. All Philadelphia sports fans and NFL enthusiasts around the country hoped that Weaver would be okay.
Manning Bowl is the term coined for the meeting of the teams of Manning brothers Eli (New York Giants) and Peyton (Indianapolis Colts) in NFL competition. It doesn't happen every season so when the match up does occur there is much media attention. You are going to hear the term "Manning Bowl" so much this week that you soon will get to the stage that you may scream when you hear it. Before you get to that point, watch this DirecTV spot playing off of the upcoming bout of brotherly competition. It's pretty amusing.
Randy Moss displayed a whole lot of crazy in his post game press conference yesterday after the New England Patriots' defeat of the Cincinnati Bengals. So much going on that I couldn't listen after first the 30 seconds of insanity. All I could do was look. At that outfit. Which had oh so many things going on... I think I am most fascinated by the giant headphones. I mean, what?! No, I'm wrong. The pièce de résistance of this ensemble is the red doo rag. Worn beneath an off-center baseball cap.
No, I'm not referring to the the first Monday Night Football game of the season, which features Lewis' Ravens battling the New York Jets. I am too emotionally drained from yesterday's games to take on more football. Instead, I am talking about yet another commercial featuring Lewis for Old Spice. It's strange, but I just love it.
Is it wrong that these commercials are making me love Ray Lewis? I never disliked him, but I am instantly a fan of anything or anyone that makes me laugh.
I have spent most of this day watching football. Both teams I was pulling for lost--the Colts and Eagles. One more game to go--Redskins versus Cowboys (gotta cheer for Donovan). Following 3 teams may damn well kill me this season. I don't know how I'm going to sustain this. I was emotionally drained after the Colts game and had a headache after so much screaming, then on to the Eagles at 4:15. Now the Redskins at 8. I am turning into a dude.
